Did you feel that? Experts confirm that more tremors and earthquakes are expected to hit the Maltese islands
As of yet, there is nothing to worry about.
In a recent interview with One News, Dr Matthew Aguis, a researcher in the geo-science department of the University of Malta revealed that more tremors are expected over the coming weeks.
He explained that the origins of the tremors experienced in Malta over the past few days was due to a crack between Malta and Libya. The crack is found approximately 120km South of Malta.
The crack doesn’t simple cause one earthquake but multiple tremors that will take place over a period of time.
The tremors and earthquakes are yet to stop, and the Maltese Islands are most likely about to experience more tremors in the coming days and weeks.
Future tremors will approximately have the same power as those before them.
Dr Aguis went on to explain that they’re constantly monitoring the tremors and if they see that anything alarming is about to happen, they’ll instantly contact Civil Protection and other relevant authorities.
